San Francisco Giants Sign Free Agent Catcher

The San Francisco Giants have bolstered their catching depth by signing Jakson Reetz to a minor league contract.

Reetz, who previously played in the Kansas City Royals organization, chose to opt out of his contract after an impressive stint with the Triple-A Omaha Storm Chasers.

The 27-year-old catcher showcased his skills by hitting .274 with an on-base percentage of .349 and a slugging percentage of .526, including four home runs in 106 plate appearances.

While he aims to reduce his strikeout rate, Reetz's offensive abilities make him a valuable addition to the Giants' minor league system.

Defensively, Reetz is highly regarded for his receiving, blocking, and framing skills behind the plate.

He holds a .238/.348/.403 triple-slash line, with 67 home runs, 285 RBIs, 24 stolen bases, and 292 runs scored across 605 games played in the minors.

Moreover, his versatility is evident as he has experience playing in left field as well.

With this signing, the Giants fortify their catching position in the organization and add depth for potential future call-ups to the major league roster. Photo Credit:  Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports
